    Yeah, agreed. The company doesn't cover the whole cost, it's a fixed amount. But close enough. :-)

    The only complication to sort out is disconnecting his Spotify account from Fido so we can port...

    Great to know, thanks. The youngun's starting a career as a long-haul trucker, with multiple trips to the US each week. Looks like the current Bell & Telus plans are identical. He gets a phone...

    Upon further investigation, it looks like Telus or Bell. Normally I ignore them as contenders, and was hoping there was a magical non-Bell alternative. :-)
    Since both have identical plans that'll...

    Speaking of which, who does have decent Canada/US plans? My youngun' is just starting a job that's going to involve a lot of time back & forth to the US. He has a Samsung S8, which may or may not be...

    This article may help: http://www.freedomobile.com/knowledgebase/12/cdma-vs-gsm-vs-lte--what-is-the-difference-.html

    Rogers is GSM, so you'd need a GSM/LTE phone. Bell used to support CDMA, but I'...

    Yeah, so online chat confirmed that they did give me a 3GB "bonus", but only for one month. I mentioned that it would be real nice if these e-mails they sent out had a bit more verbosity to them,...

    Well, since I've been with Rogers since the original Cantel days, I'll take a little loyalty. :-)

    I'll likely ping them anyway, because they really need to learn to be a bit more clear. If the...

    Curious "upgrade" in my Inbox this morning

    I'm on the 5GB Share Everything plan with 2 lines, with a roll-over of the 1st of each month. I don't have any special deals or credits.

    Had an e-mail from Rogers this morning talking about...

    I just tested again, and I get "You have mail from <sender>. Please reply with 'Read' to read your message". If I reply "Read", I get the message with no extra charges. That's the way it's always...

    It's probably not so much "firewall" per-se, but most wireless providers do double-NATting. So your "public" IP address is only public up to some point in the system (often the tower), and then...

    Probably not hardware per se, but some obscurity in the firmware or the Asus variant of the OS. Pity.

    The youngun isn't as concerned, because he has all his normal contacts set up, and they...

    I got my youngun' a Zenfone 3 Laser, running on Fido, a couple of months ago and he mentioned the same thing. Call Display works, but Name Display (which is part of his package) doesn't. But he...

    If you're at the same address, it won't be a problem merging. Though technically all you're doing is "porting" her number to your account and then cancelling her separate account. As long as there...

    I was under the impression that the Share Everything plans already came with Rogers One Number. However, since RON is in the process of being phased out (discussed in another thread in this very...

    Do the math. Look up your best online phone if you bought (typically unlocked) from a reputable retailer. That's your starting number.

    Now, take the price difference between your current plan, and...

    I was hoping to find a friend who wanted a 950XL (I'd prefer the 950) and go halfsie's on the deal, but all my WinPhone friends bought early (and paid full price). Pity didn't just do a 50%-off deal....

    Thanks for the note. I looked closely at that, but the added complication was that the wife wanted her NextIssue. I did the math and looked at the various options and ended up with the 5Gig (6Gig for...

    My bet is it's neither of your phones sending those messages. It's something else that's somehow "connected" to your number. With Windows Phones in particular, it's actually not possible for *any*...

    As always, fine print: you only get the Shomi/Spotify/NextIssue add-on for 24 months. Okay, technically not *that* fine a print, but it needs to be mentioned before people get too excited.

    I'm a bit confused. You're saying you have weak coverage at your house. Rogers is agreeing that you have weak coverage at your house, and evidence is that your neighbors also have weak coverage at...

    Just so you know, you only need to *pay* for at least one day's worth on the Roam Mobility SIM to keep it active, but you don't actually need to *use* it. So there's no particular reason for you to...
